    Cookies by the hundreds.


    I have found on my system Firefox (57.0.2) is getting hundreds of tracking cookies. Found with SAS.

    It doesn't happen with Windows 7.

    Any ideas?

    Hi,
    Use in-private browsing at least they will not be retained and deleted on exit.

    It could of been Google. I have changed to Bing. I will see what happens.

    Thank you.

    Hi,
    Bing I believe installs more cookies :)

    Duck duck go is a better test

    Well Firefox and Google don't do it on Windows 7.

    I just checked my Windows 7 computer, which I have been on line for a hour or so and SAS didn't find any tracking cookies.
    I also use Firefox and Google on the Windows 7 computer.

    I will compare setting and see if I can find any difference.

    Did you use SAS ?

    I am not familiar with SAS, is it credible ? I do recall using it once several years ago and seems it was difficult to remove ?

    I have use Super Anti Spyware for years and have never had a problem with it.
    Using Windows 7, for a month and don't get 2 or 3 tracking cookies.
    I go to many more different sites on the 7 computer than I do on the 10 computer.
    The only thing different is the operating system. I don't really understand how that would make a difference.

    I'm going to do a scan with Eset Online Scanner and see if it tells me anything.

    In one hour I got 351 of these.

    Using Firefox (57.0.2) and Google.

    Here is a short list.

    Memory items scanned : 856
    Memory items detected : 0
    Registry items scanned : 56747
    Registry items detected : 0
    File items scanned : 8966
    File items detected : 351
